mild lumber disc & moderate facet joint degenerative changes, & congenitally narrowed lumbar spinal canal.
I have been diagnosed with the above, can you possibly explain this to me in English as my GP has told me it will only get worse with time i was involved in a road traffic accident 3yrs ago & have had back problems since, getting severe over the last yr really affecting my life I'm only 37yrs old & thought that only older people suffered with this my life has changed so much i used to be so fit & healthy now i cant even go to the gym most days i cant walk or stand for longer than 5 Min's even sleeping is a problem as i can never get comfortable & wake 6-7 times at night in pain or needing the loo this is what the M R I scan report says.....

At L2-3 mild disc bulge with annular tear,

At L3-4 similar disc bulge with annular tear, with mild central canal indentation.

At L4-5 more prominent disc bulge, with an annular tear, with moderate central spinal canal stenosis with cauda equina nerve crowding,& border line lateral recess stenosis with L5 neural impingement. Moderate foraminal stenosis also.

At L5-S1 there is a moderate right lateral recess-stenosis & moderate foraminal stenosis, worse on the right side. Small far lateral facet joint synovial cyst on the left at this level.

comment;
Multilevel lumbar disc bulges, moderate hypertrophy & congenitally narrowed lumbar spinal canal, with moderate centeral spinal canal & borderline significantn lateral recess stenosis at L4-5 & moderate lower lumber foraminal stenosis.
